middle class was buried under failed bush policies. and of course they say romney/ryan would change all that. however, this is an opportunity, which the romney campaign is taking to say, you know what, we agree with you. the middle class has been buried and we're going to change that. imagine this as kind of the dry season in the west in the summer. and any match or any lightning strike is going to start a huge fire. and that's what's going on here the closer we get to the election. >> this isoming a day before the debate. how detrimental could this be for the obama campaign? >> i'm sure the obama campaign is thinking this is a headache they don't need. as you know in the past joe biden has given them a bunch of headaches. they like joe biden very much but they prefer he wouldn't make this kind of mistake. people make mistakes. the president has made his own mistakes. mitt romney has made his own mistakes. this will probably be another line that mitt romney carries in his back pocket to use in the presidential debate saying, oh, by the way your own vice president said that the middl

policies. look, mitt romney's supposed strength has been the economy. he's been running for president for five years. so it's not that voters don't know him. it's that they know him too well. he has lost his edge on the economy in all of the recent polls. so voters are now looking at him to say, okay, if we don't trust him on the economy which has been the foundation for his platform for running for president, we certainly don't trust him on any of the other issues that are important to us. like education, like housing, like jobs. and so we don't like what he is telling us. and especially when you have the video that came out, it's absolutely devastating. so it's going to be very tough to turn this around. >> let me set that up just for a second. mary, you got a lot of attention for something you said to me right here in "the situation room" last week. let's listen and talk about it. >> many of us have been waiting for mitt romney to say this clearly and loudly, there are makers and takers, there are producers and there are parasites. i hope he doesn't just double down, quadruples dow

speaking at the clinton global initiative just ahead of the president. romney focused on foreign policy as well vowing he would link u.s. foreign aid to trade with help going to developing countries that remove barriers to investment and trade. he also discussed unrest in the middle east and said he would have a different approach than president obama. >> a lot of americans including myself are developed -- excuse me, are troubled by developments in the middle east. syria has witnessed the killing of tens of thousands of people. the president of egypt is a member of the muslim brotherhood. our em bass dor to libya was assassinated in a terrorist attack. iran is moving towards nuclear weapons capability. we somehow feel that we're at the mercy of events rather than shaping events. a year from now i hope to return this meeting as president having made substantial progress towards the forms i've outlined. i also hope to remind the world of the goodness and the bigness of the american heart. never apologize for america. i believe that america has been one of the greatest forces for good the wo

right, wolf. mitt romney's blasting president obama on his foreign policy. in a "wall street journal" op-ed that caught our attention, the republican nominee writes this in part, in syria, tens of thousands of innocent people have been slaughtered. in egypt, the muslim brotherhood has come to power and the country's peace treaty with israel hajjes in the balance. in libya, our ambassador was murdered. u.s. beams throughout the region have been stormed in violent protests and in iran they continue to move full tilt toward nuclear weapons capability all the while promising to annihilate israel. >> let's talk about this with two guests. former commander and obama campaign surrogate, general wesley clark and richard williamson for the romney campaign. gentlemen, thanks very much for coming in. general clark, let me start with you. you saw in that quote from the article in "the "wall street journal" "wall street journal"" which i'm sure you wrote is and that tens of thousands have been slaughtered. what's the president doing about the slaughter that continues right now in syria? >> well,

wouldn't be surprised the romney administration -- i mean the romney team make hay out of anything. look, they're looking for an issue. and they're the last people that we should hear from on foreign policy given all of the missteps that mitt romney has made. but look, wolf, beyond the political nature of this whole inquiry, we need to look at the fact that al qaeda leaders posted a video a day before the attack on september 10th which mr. alvarez wa ri wanted to avhe of one of his deputin libya. he called upon libyans to, you know, try torounrest. so look i thin one of the things we should do right now is to let congress -- members of congress investigate this. they will investigate this. senator kerry along with senator has sent a letter to the administration answering very important questions that i think the american people will want to know. on the short end of this, i doubt very seriously that the administration will try to mislead the american people at a time when as we all know that this administration has been hunting down al qaeda leaders all throughout the middle east and nor
